Heysen Trail

The Heysen 7: Historical Fences

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 – 16.14 km

The weather improved overnight and the sky was clear in the morning. Today’s hiking was a mix of roadwalking, fence-walking (am I confusing people with this term? Maybe I should say fence-following), and a small amount of cross-country probably following some historical fence. A higher elevation section before the trail turned east towards Mt. Elm Campsite offered nice views.


The campsite is located in a forest that’s somewhat sparse around the actual area you’re supposed to camp in, but there’s no wind tonight for my first time on the HT. I thought to myself that it’s amazing how quiet the countryside can be. And then I moved around on my Neoair. Crinkle crinkle.
